I'M My Daddy Made Over - Poem by Sabrina Niday Hansel

I am who I am because of him
He's the reason for my son's name
He gave me my courage & my strength
To stand tall even when standing wasn't easy
Stand for the ones who can't
To think and fend for myself
I'm my Daddy made over

Taught me to fight back
To never back down
How to pick myself back up
When I've been knocked down
Fight for what I believe
I'm my Daddy made over

He gave me my stubbornness
Gave me my pride
Gave me my temper
Taught me not to take crap
To speak my mind no matter who
Work for what I want
I'm my Daddy made over

How to keep my emotions in check
How to handle large amounts of pain
When in trouble he always had my back
He knew how my brain worked better than anyone
I got it from him
I'm my Daddy made over

Even though he's gone
I'll stand and continue on
I may stumble I may fall
May even get hurt along the way
But I'll pick myself back up
I'll dust myself off and stand tall
I'm honored and proud to say
I'm my Daddy made over
